musings on stationery

holiday card madness draws to a close…

WOW.  this holiday season was quite the whirlwind.  i got so many more orders than i was expecting to, and am so unbelievably grateful for my AWESOME clients who are gracing mailboxes all over the country (world, even!) with calliespondence holiday cards!!   yea!!  here’s a quick rundown of what i’ve been up to these past few weeks / months (yes, months…i had some early birds start in october and highly recommend doing so!):

…designing and getting 2575 individual cards printed

…lining 1660 envelopes

…trimming and affixing 1460 pictures to cards

O — M — G.  i mean, i know i was busy and i know i feel weary but damn.  the good news is that i now feel justified in my desire to sleep 12 hours a night until Christmas. 

a HUGE merry shoutout to my elves named rbb (master picture affixer and i can assure you is responsible for over 1K of that number above), betsey (fabulous and wonderful envelope liner cutter) and brin (queen of liner tracing and so much more)…and all of my absolutely marvelous clients who entrusted me with their 2010 holiday cards.  you were all a complete joy to work with, and i made so many new pals and reconnected with old ones!  love that. 

and now my friends, i am unchaining myself from the calliespondence worldwide headquarters where i have been firmly placed for the better part of six weeks and i am off to get some of these:

and then pull one of these:

have a fabulously merry weekend!!

    Sing it sister! You and I lead very similar lives, though I bet yours is slightly less sticky. Here's to the rush that was merry, and a Christmas that will be restful!

    Callie you are amazing! I can't wait to see all these new cards! And I love the pic of the napping baby, btw – hilarious. Hope you have a great weekend braving the holiday shoppers and getting some much needed R&R!
